About Me

  • Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos with us. I hope that all is going well with your wee babe and that you are feeling better yourself.

Your blog never fails to put a smile on my face and inspire me to inject more colour into the world. Thank you.


Hi Lucy - I am quite new to blogging and have just discovered your beautiful blog via the lovely hardaker & Pope. I am so excited to have found you, I love your pictures and your wonderful crochet!! I look forward to following you in 2010. Congrats to your family on your newest little bub :) Warm Aussie hug to you - Tina.


Ha, seems I wasn't the only one initially thinking: 'Oh NO!'

Thank you for this wonderful overview: I have only followed your blog for a couple of weeks now and the colours featured in it make me so cheerful, the pictures of your house so inspired. I am happy I stumbled on your blog!!


As ever, beautiful beautiful photos.

Just wanted to let you know that you bring sunshine to my blogging life so I'm passing on an award to you. It's waiting on my blog so do pop in and see me


I love the way your photos pick out the beauty in everyday things. Happy New Year to you and your family, and thank you for taking the time to post these beautiful pictures


You have the most colourful life! Lucy I think I am in love with your house :-)


OMGosh! I have only recently found your site and been totally engrossed in it and your beautiful creations. My heart actually fell when the first work I read was Farewell, LOL!!! I LOVE your beautiful designs and the colors, LOVE LOVE LOVE!So glad I found you and look forward to seeing your new posts!

Dear Lucy do not start a posting with the word FAREWELL. My heart skipped a beat
until I focused properly and read it again
properly. Mind you I notice that I was not alone. Thank goodness. The photos are wonderful and I am looking forward to
being a follower out here in blog land
during 2010.
I'm sorting out my crafting stuff and looking the bits and pieces for a special
Love Sarah west mids.


I love your New Year Post! your year is so beautifully colourful. I love you crochet, I hope to do more this year. Jane x

Greetings from sunny and cold Pennsylvania, USA...Dear sweet Luce, I saw Farewell and thought "oh, no!" Then scrolling down, I realized what you were doing. Beautiful colors all year. Happy 2010 to you and your family...health,happiness, and good times. Love, Emily V.


oh that's lovely! I share you passion for colour, your pictures are delightful! I have those stripey socks that appear in a couple of pictures (I am in fact wearing them now). The best way to cheer up a dull morning!


Thankyou. Your pictures are really beautiful. Might just inspire me to try my own this year. Looking through the pictures reminded me of all your colourful and cheery postings. Looking forward to more but only once you have the time and have gathered your strength.


What kind of camera do you use? You photos are fabulous!


Thank you! I got the robe from Boden!!! I can't take it off. I am in love with this robe. I want to wear it to church on Sunday. Would that be wrong? Hmmmm. I was looking through your pictures and saw the shot of millionaire shortbread. Oh I miss it. I've tried to recreate it here in the state but it just isn't the same. Do you have a recipe? We were in Scotland about 9 years ago and couldn't get enough of it. Thank you for sharing. I love your blog. Oh yes, Blessings to your new little man.


Such bright, happy, colorful pictures - I think that you should publish a book! There are a couple on the market that I own - one on domesticity, another on a daily photo project. If you compiled your patterns, etc., I am positive it would be a best seller!


Hi Lucy - Its me, Jen in Boise. First congratulations. I think I'm probably the last person to tell you that. I'm so excited for you. AND JEALOUS. To have a newborn is such a gift. Oh I wish I could go back and savor all of that. You can!

Also, another question. Today's post. Man I'd love the months as a calander. Any way to do that? I'd hang it right here in my little desk nook thinking of Lucy every day. How fun!

Huge congratulations to you and the rest of your family Lucy.
And welcome to the world little man!

Take care and enjoy the rest.

Yikes! That was a scary moment or two until I fully realized what you were doing here.
Lovely photos, breathtaking colors, and perfect composition. I love it.

Shari Sunday

Funny. After following your blog for a year now I remember many of those pictures and the story surrounding them. I was startled for a moment by the title until I saw the 2009 part. Beautiful pictures.


Talk about sending me into a panic... 'farewell'? Crumbs! And I so agree with Amanda's comment up there - a calendar would be great...


My goodness, didn't you do a lot last year? What a glorious display of gorgeousness! So many varied and wonderful things you brought to us. The dish of sweeties remind me of how that post made me laugh and I loved those butterfly primulas. There are cakes there that look so yummy you could eat them off the screen! The little Easter hen puts me in mind of the fact that while in the depths of Winter, Spring is on its way and we will all be out of our snowy doldrums before too long. In fact if I want to do what I want before Easter I need to start now! I hope you have had a wonderful start to the new year, and that in 2010 you will continue to bring us all the happiness, hope and colour you did in 2009


hi lucy, i see your blog... you have a beautiful life and you are a lucky woman... i love the crochet like you! congratulation for the new baby...it's all so sweet! emh.. i don't speak english very well, but i understand a little bit of this language! sorry for my bad english.. if you want, visit my blog! you're welcome! kisskisskiss =angel=


Lucy ~ Your photos are beautifully colourful as always. I have really enjoyed my visits to the Attic in 2009 and look forward to as much Attic 24 colourfulness in 2010 :O) xx


I really love your photo's and mosaic's. I really need to find out how to do them! Everything is so colourful it makes you feel happy just looking at them. All the best for 2010. x
